Product Description

USS Pickens APA 190

Sept 1944 - April 1946

 World War II Cruise Book

 Bring the Cruise Book to Life with this Multimedia Presentation

A great part of Naval history.

You would be purchasing the USS Pickens APA 190 cruise book during World War II.  Each page has been placed on a CD for years of enjoyable computer viewing.  The CD comes in a plastic sleeve with a custom label.   Every page has been enhanced and is readable.  Rare cruise books like this sell for a hundred dollars or more when buying the actual hard copy if you can find one for sale.

This would make a great gift for yourself or someone you know who may have served aboard her.  Usually only ONE person in the family has the original book.  The CD makes it possible for other family members to have a copy also. You will not be disappointed we guarantee it.

Some of the items in this book are as follows:

  • Launching and Christening the Ship
  • Officer and Crew Roster (Names)
  • Divisional Group Crew Photos
  • Crossing the Equator Ceremony
  • Travel Details with Ports of Call
